Laser Dentistry In Enfield, CT - Pappas Family Dentistry
Our expert dentist and competent, friendly staff strive for maximum patient comfort and oral health. As such, they have become experts in a branch of restorative dentistry called laser dentistry. Painless, fast and accomplished with no anesthesia, laser dentistry precisely treats hard and soft tissue dental issues.
The Hard and Soft Tissue Laser
We have selected the Waterlase soft and hard tissue laser from Pappas Family Dentistry. Cleared by the Food and Drug Administration for teeth, bones and gums and other oral tissues, the Waterlase treats:
- uneven gum lines
- infected gums (due to periodontitis or tooth abscess)
- decayed enamel and dentin, the inner layer of a tooth's structure
- small cosmetic issues such as pitted enamel
- multiple problems, such as several small cavities, in one visit
Laser Dentistry has Several Advantages
Overall, the biggest advantage benefits the patient. Individuals who have been treated with the Waterlase report that they are exceptionally comfortable and anxiety-free. According to the Dental Fear Research Center at the University of Washington at Seattle, dental phobia is one of the biggest reasons people avoid getting the routine care and restorative procedures they need. Laser dentistry helps these individuals feel little to no fear--often simply because they spend far less time in the dental chair.
In addition, when our expert laser dentist uses the Waterlase, there is no need for:
- the dental drill, and its noise and vibration
- anesthesia, injections and their side effects such as a numb face or "fat" lip
- multiple visits to the dental office
Laser dentistry allows your Enfield dentist better instrument control and outstanding versatility. In other words, our dentist can use the laser to treat a wide variety of oral health problems with no cutting, suturing or bleeding. Patients are able to resume their normal activities, such as school and work, right away with no restrictions on what they eat and drink.
